We receive many requests from members of the public asking for
photographs of headstones and memorials. Unfortunately, due to the
numbers of casualties, the Commission does not hold photographs of
each of its commemorations.
However, our partners, The War Graves Photographic Project, are
a group of dedicated volunteers who have undertaken the immense
task of recording, archiving and making available to the
descendants, images of the graves or memorial listings of every
service casualty since the outbreak of the First World War.
So far they have been able to photograph and record over 1.6
million named graves and memorials. To learn more about the
project, search the online database or request a photograph please
